Freeride BC in North Saanich simply needs you fingers for one minute!

This is a bike community correct? Well I am here to tug at your heart strings and ask for your help and launch a modern bike park North Saanich BC. We have been working for years on a local project with the community to develop a world class training center- www.freeridebc.blogspot.com and www.freeridebc.com

Now we simply need you to vote online!

I was planning to shout out about this park next summer but we really need to ask a serious favor...go to this site and vote for our local park: www.avivacommunityfund.org

You could help us open up the last phases faster than you think. Slalom tracks, advanced pump tracks and pro DJ lines are coming and from there, indoor facilities with foam pits and ramps much like Rays.

The leading project on AVIVA is at 2800 votes, the most votes by the community wins the grant money up for grabs. So please treat this like a early Christmas gift from yourself to the riding community and vote on this park!


This park is winning awards for it's concept and opening up the doors for other communities to do the same. Voting takes two minutes max and you will not get spammed for voting.

Thanks in advance guys, we really appreciate it!

 It reallyis a super rad park guys. We were there the day they signed the papers and made it public, and it's amazing. A lot of people have put it so much hard work into it, you can't really not vote! The sooner everything gets finished, the sooner we can go ride it all, and have contests and big names!

 Shit! This looks sick Greg! I have always wondered what it looked like since we spoke in Whistler this summer. Looks like I will be eading down there next summer to check this out for sure! You guys should do the same and come up here next year so we can do some riding. Cheers, Rob. Love the new Cg btw too, can't wait to get one mounted up.

 You can also vote once a day for this thing! Support this by voting! Greg and all others in this project have put a ton of work into it. Can't wait to go see it in person one day, instead of getting told about it all the time, hahaha.

 Thanks everyone, I know this is a cheezy aproach but we caught wind of this fundraiser a tad late. I looked at a lot of the applications and had to do it becasue all we want money for dirt that's it! You can vote daily too so spam the hell out of it because once we are done with this park we will move on to more and openly hand our designs and ideas to any other community wanting to do the same. I did not want to blow the whistle until next summer but I have 9 days for voting so I asked the amazing guys at Pinkbike to put this up!

 Yep, you can extract from it all day long and make money but at some point you have to give back a bit and help it grow right. Straitline just headed up development, many many more people behind me I just will be doing the bike culture side of it.

 voted. I stopped at this park on my last trip thru the island, even though its not done its pretty impressive and has a lot of really fun sections. the whole area has a lot of potential for bigger and better things, so i really hope this project wins in the end.
